Form & Verdict

Multiple winner for Archie Watson; 0-8 for this yard but there have been more promising signs in recent starts, most recently when second of five at Brighton 13 days ago (6f, good to firm); Hollie Doyle knows him well (on board for three of his wins) and a change of headgear could give him a lift too; one to consider.

Had the benefit of Harry Davies' 7lb claim when winning over C&D in May (good); has a solid chance if reproducing that form but he hasn't done so in four runs since; others stronger for win purposes.

Form & Verdict

In rude health last autumn and he was knocking at the door in the spring; he has gone off the boil more recently though and may not be ready to capitalise on his drop in the weights just yet.

Form & Verdict

C&D winner who has drawn a blank since winning on AW in November 2020; clear signs of a revival when he finished second at Windsor on Monday (5f, good to firm), travelling strongly and having to wait for a gap, eventually finding a well-handicapped opponent too good close home; runs off the same mark today and he's a key player.

Form & Verdict

He ran his first race of any real merit when second of ten in a 0-55 handicap at Windsor ten days ago (6f, good to firm); he should have the pace to cope with the drop in trip and he retains some potential after just seven starts.

Didn't make any further progress after winning stable debut in January (5f, AW) but finished well to go very close in C&D handicap three weeks ago; no threat to clear winner when third in this grade here (6f, good to firm) in Friday but that was still a fairly good effort; major player.

Yarmouth win (5f, soft) for Mick Appleby last summer was his only success in 31 starts; showed a little bit in a couple of outings for this yard in January, but comfortably held in a 0-50 classified event at Southwell (5f, Tapeta) last time; has bled from the nose on more than one occasion.
